English Freakbeat

Certaly I have several sets of stuff British from the 1960's-Nuggets era, sort of outside the concept
as , unlike most other lands they didn't just attempt to knock off the US sound, as pretty always (punk, metal) they had their own unique sound that was NOT superior to the US in my view, simply stood side by side......the difference, as it were, being something like the difference between Visa and Master Card, or, even, the American League and National Leauge (is an AMERICAN baseball reference for you who don't grasp my meaning.....forgive, I've been drinking all day, and sampling some "other" stuff as well......it IS a long weekend after all!)

So, English Freakbeat.I am gonna give ya SIX discs of this stuff today, it's a pretty good set, little/no overlap with previous sets I've posted......I like the set quite a bit, this will PROBABLY be the only Brit set I publish in this "International/Regional Nuggets" format, as I'm wearing down on this concept anyway......I've got some Italian stuff for tomorrow, but I'm not going to post nearly all of it, for reasons that will be explained tomorrow......so, here in a couploe days, I DO have some more mps from this era, BUT the regional concep is going to be finito.......it's been fun, and it has kinda given my blog something of a unique flavor I think, but I bore kind of easilly, and, while I have struck reader/downer gold with some of these obscure 60's comps, I WILL continue with some more of them, JUST NOT in the regional format........hope you've enjoyed the groove and hope ya like the nxt direction I go in, whatever it might be (I'd clue ya in but I have no clue).

OK, here we go.....SIX DISCS, appreciate it......Disc 1 leads off with the Groundhogs, yes, TS
McPhee and co, I did a huge post about them in thier latter incarnation a while back when they were a slammin', screeching guitar-blues band......anyway, it is WAAAAY cool that we get an early track from them here, we aslo get the Primitives, The Wild Ones, The Birds, The Rats, and a few other legends of the era.

Disc 2 treats us to Mickey Finn, Muleskinners, The Limeys, and LOTS more......Disc 3 brings us a few tracks from the Ravens featuring Kinks Dave Davies, the Raving Savages version of "Surf City" (!), Sons of Fred, the Shakespears and LOTS more......

Disc Four? Glad you'd ask.....good stuff from the Clique, Soul Agents, Syndicats (the standard "Crawdaddy Simone"), Mickey Finn & the Bluemen, and a TON more. Disc Five gives us Pete Best, Billy J Kramer, The Peeps, New York Public Library, and of coures the Cryin' Shames take on (wait for it) "What's New Pussycat?".......and finally Disc 6....we get the Fairies, Junco Partners, Bo & Peep, David John & the Mood, and lots more......OK, in the US this stuff is pretty damned obscure.....I'm sure some of you folks that call SOCCER "football" will be quite familar with a lot of it, but us Statesiders (who call FOOTBALL "football") have really limited experience with a lot of this.......

OK, I do have quite a bit more of this UK Freakbeat stuff.....I'm NOT planning on posting a lot of it, UNLESS you guys request it......six discs is a good bit, but I do what the minions desire. Let me know what you think, I'm running low on "regions" of the international variety, but I have still probaby 500-600 MORE comps of Nugget-type rock that we haven't even touched on yet......gotta know what you folks want.......PLEASE let me know, OK?
